Doane University Reviews
Doane is a place where you will find your career and future! This is a play where you will find your best friends, colleagues, and relationships. It’s a smaller school but that means more personal. The professors care so much about you that one professor I know jump started a good friend of mines car on the side of a road for him. The campus is very beautiful with the best nature in the fall and spring. The Greek life on campus is different but also very nice. We are not a national Greek school meaning you don’t have to pay thousands of dollars, and there’s no stress. The people you meet here will change your life and bring you so much joy.
My experience at Doane has been very delightful! I've met new people, great staff ,and professors. I like how everything on campus is nearby and convenient. I like how there is smaller classes and people from all over come to this university. The food is delicious and everyone is friendly.
Doane University is an amazing school that allows students to connect with their professors. It is so easy to meet up with professors ahead of time if one cannot attend class to stay on top of class material. Everyone is so helpful! It is a friendly environment. If I ever have a question about something, people are always willing to help me with what I need. There are also many academic resources available.
